How have you all been? All my life, I have been a big lover of lipsticks, as compared to lip glosses. The Lancome Lip Lover (which is actually a lip gloss) is not a new product – it was launched in March 2014. However, I first came to know about them from the gorgeous Lisa Eldridge videos and I must say I was intrigued. I decided to get a few for myself and having used them now, I will definitely say I am floored. This lip gloss is simply superb. I got it in three shades – Lip Lover, Orange Menage, and Rose Graciuse (all three belong to the Creative Chic category). Today, I will be reviewing the shade “Lip Lover.”
A three-in-one lip perfector that offers the ultimate non-sticky shine, rich lipstick-like color, and lasting hydration.
What it does:
Give lips the shine of a gloss, the color intensity of a lipstick, and the cushiony feel and comfort of a balm. This intelligent emulsion formulation blends two phases in the bottle. Upon application, the phases break apart into two layers: an upper layer with a glossy shine, transparency, and a plumping effect, and a lower, layer with oil and pigment that creates a balmy base so and bright color that adheres to lips.
How To Use:
- Apply Lip Lover using the flat side of the applicator, gliding back and forth on the lips.
- Define lips using the flocked edge of the applicator, starting from the outer corners and sliding in towards the center.
- Using extra pressure when defining lips, subtly over-draw the lips to create a fuller look.

My Experience with Lancome Lip Lover #337 Lip Lover:
Packaging: Typical silver colored embossed Lancome box, which holds the small tube inside. The size of the tube is quite small, so while you can easily carry it in a small purse, the price does seem quite dear. The tube is metallic, with the shade that can be seen from the outside. It has a nice button with “click” mechanism. On pressing it, the wand is released. The wand has a decent slant brush at the end, which is small, soft, pliable, and very easy to use.
Shade: This shade is the one that’s most promoted by the brand, and the name of the shade is same as the product. It looks gorgeous on actress Lily Collins in the campaign photo (and on Lisa Eldridge as well!!!!). The shade is described as a bright berry pink by the brand. On my non-pigmented lips, it comes out only as a lovely light berry pink shade, not very dark. The shade is more suitable for light and medium skin tone people. People with pigmented lips may see a darker shade on application. It has a subtle floral smell on first applying it.
Formula: “Mar Jaawa” on this formula. This is the best formula lip gloss I have ever come across. The consistency is medium thick, but on the lips, it feels very light. It feels almost gel like on the lips. The pigmentation is superb for the shade and coats the lips in one swipe. It does not have any shimmer. It is not very sticky at all. It coats the lips uniformly in a single swipe, without any patchiness at all. The lips feel so soft and hydrated post application. The shine it imparts is also good. The shine settles down after some time, but the pigmentation stays on. Even after it comes off, the lips remain so very soft and hydrated. It does not dry out the lips at all. Also, it does not settle into lip lines. It does not bleed on my lips. It requires a makeup remover to get off completely. It may spread and feel balm-like if you try to remove it using an foaming cleanser.
Staying Power: It lasts 6-8 hours on my lips, without meals. With meals, the lasting time is shorter. It does transfer on cups initially, but settles down after an hour or so.
